My Morning in Exile

How it’s possible to miss four days of work yet have seven days worth of work to makeup is beyond me, but I’ll be damned if that’s not what I’m facing at the moment. Oh well, it’s isn’t going anywhere, so I’ll try to get to at least some new stuff this afternoon. In the meantime:

  • Milton Bradley’s son goes to one tough friggin’ preschool.
  • Could Jason Marquis be left out of the Rockies’ postseason rotation?
  • Kenny Williams spares the coaching staff but throws the players under the bus.
  • Albert Pujols: ballplayer of the decade.
  • A good reason to stay away from the Pirates-Reds game today. As if you needed one.
  • Finally, are there any teams that might want Milton Bradley? Maybe.
  • Calcaterra’s Law is in full effect: any paperwork and/or emails that sit unread on one’s desktop for more than a week automatically moot themselves. Given that I have yet to be disbarred or sued for malpractice, I have no reason to believe that the law does not hold true 100% of the time.

    Okay, I’ve been holding there all day for fear of posting on the Blue Network, and also to keep to (one of the)themes of today’s banter:
    Kenny Williams wants a member of the Southsiders to “rather live in his world than live without him in his”
    Booby Cox thinks the Braves “come as sweet and clear as moonlight through the pines”
    Too much bubbly.

    I’m not a Cards fan, but it’s hard to argue with the phenomenon that is Albert Pujols.  The man’s a brilliant ball player.  The fact that he’s not a jerk (or seen to be a jerk, anyhow) is a huge point in his favor.

    My god the comments following the first Milton Bradley story are frightening.  It’s kind of funny listening to them argue about Pete Rose, but it’s downright scary to hear those commenters try to dissect racial politics in America.

    Agreed.  The comments on the first Bradley story make me a strong supporter of enforced eugenics.  Yikes.

    On another note, if they really could trade Bradley for Burrell, I’d make that deal now, even if Burrell doesn’t end up hitting for crap.

    Craig, The first rule of corporate America is: Never take vacation, especially if you are in a highly technical, skilled, and/or professional position. What’s the point? No one ever does your work when you away and you are always buried when you return. The second rule: No good deed goes unpunished.  If you are actually good at your job and those higher up the food chain know it, you get to do twice as much work as the incompetents who are getting paid the same. I love corporate America. Re Milton Bradley: Like Dr. Gregory House, I find only quirky,… Read more »

    I think regarding the comments on Crawford and Zobrist that the point may be that Crawford has had a longer major league career for us to judge his real talent. Therefore, we may be more confident that his performance this year represents his peak. Zobrist, on the other hand, seemed to emerge in the second half last year and then topped that late season performance with his play this year. So it is possible we are not yet sure what his peak really is. Add the fact that he has moved around the diamond quite a bit, and it is… Read more »
